Oklahoma City had a lot of stories to share in 2022. Many transformative developments that will shape OKC’s future broke ground, such as the OKANA Resort, Convergence in the Innovation District and so many more we can’t list them all. Projects from the strivingly ambitious MAPS 4 initiative are beginning to take root all around the city. Four — four! — sports franchises have come to The Big Friendly.

Local artists and entrepreneurs are making their passions be heard — spreading their creative ideas across the U.S. and bringing together creative minds from all over to collaborate. One of Oklahoma’s most esteemed chefs won a James Beard Award, and another local restaurant was named one of the best in the country by multiple publications.

At 405 Magazine, we’ve told these stories and tried to capture all the wondrous things about this city: the arts, the food, the places, the things to do and the people who inspire us. It’s impossible to choose the “best” stories — they are all a part of what makes OKC shine — but we’ve gathered the stories that you, our readers, enjoyed the most over 2022. Also, we’ve picked a few we’re just proud of putting together.
